About me:

Hi my name is Angie and I am a therapist at Next Step Gosforth. I completed my BA Hons counselling degree in 2017. My foundation degree is in addictions. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and psychotherapy (BACP) and follow their ethical framework.

I believe therapy is the therapeutic relationship between two people with communication being the key. Providing a safe, confidential and non judgemental space for a person, helps them recognise the best way forward for themselves. They are the person who knows who they are, and what they feel they need. Taking a first step to be open and honest about how you feel, asking for help and engaging in therapy can be a healing and positive journey.

 

Clinical experience:

Specialism in addiction issues, including drugs, alcohol, relationships, gambling, food. . I see beyond the addiction, to the underlying feelings and trauma a person may feel.  I can help you with issues around low mood, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, bereavement, grief, domestic violence, historic abuse, and sexuality.

 

Clinical approaches: 

I describe myself as an integrative therapist, avoiding the “one size fits all” approach, preferring to be more fluid and work with whatever feels best for a person. I am a warm welcoming and slightly directive therapist with years of experience working with complex issues.

 

Qualifications and Training  (not including CPD):

BA (Hons) in Counselling 

Level 2-5  in Counselling

Degree in Addictions

 

What are you passionate about:

I am passionate about women’s issues, and for many years delivered a recovery programme encompassing all areas of recovery including “the sense of self”. I currently run a bereavement support group for an external service and work in private practice.
